Nitoflor SL3000 constructive solutions

Flow applied, 3 mm thick epoxy resin based

floor topping


Nitoflor SL3000 is designed for use in a wide range of light to

medium industrial environments where a lasting solution to
floor maintenance problems is required. It provides a dense,
impervious, coloured and chemically resistant floor surface
which is hygienic and easy to clean. Typical applications
include clean rooms, laboratories, plant rooms and light
industrial plants and production areas.


 Fast application - minimises downtime.

 Chemically resistant - good resistance to a wide

range of chemicals. Substrates should be dry and not suffer, or be likely to
suffer, from rising damp. If necessary, suitable damp- proof
 Durable - good abrasion resistance. membranes should be installed to prevent this. Substrates
should not have a relative humidity greater than 75% at the
time of installation.
 Hygienic - provides a dense, impervious, seamless
floor surface which is easily cleaned.
 Attractive - available in a wide range of colours to
enhance the working environment. The values given below are average figures achieved in
laboratory tests. Actual values obtained on site may show
minor variations from those quoted.
